Ok, we get it. You like/dislike Sonic '06. But that doesn't mean you go rabid to those that like/dislike the game. (The haters are worse though)

Sonic the Hedgehog (2006) (Sonic '06 to simplify) is a platform game created by both Sega and Sonic Team created in 2006. This is a game that was supposed to be a commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. Players get to play as Sonic, Shadow and a new character named Silver who battles against an ancient evil pursued by Dr. Eggman, Solaris. Before the game was released, it received praise in pre-release, thinking that it could return to the series' roots after years of being in the mixed bag. As soon as the game came out, it has gotten negative reviews for a number of reasons as well as both a toxic fandom and hatedom.
Some of them have the guts to think that no one should hate on the game when it was criticized for numerous reasons.
Some of them are zoophilic simply because of one scene when Elise kissed Sonic. Just because Elise kissed Sonic does not mean that the ship is legit. Elise kissed Sonic in order to bring him back to life.
Some make cringey fan art out of the characters such as Silver the Hedgehog.
It's not even safe from terrible ships. A user named lizathehedgehog did a yaoi ship of Mephiles and Sonic.exe.
They glorify Mephiles as if he were the best villain in the franchise just for killing Sonic.
They call anyone who hates Sonic '06 a nostalgia-tard simply because it's not Sonic Adventure 3. They don't even realize why it was hated such as a lot of glitches and bugs, sensitive controls, terrible camera, the story being messy with plotholes, the Skill Gems being unbalanced, the game trying way too hard to take itself seriously, etc.
They will think that "whoever hates the game should eat sh*t!".
If someone were to negatively criticize Sonic '06, chances are that they either throw a huge fit and refuse to calm down over them, or accuse them of whining about their childhood.
They spam "It's No Use" which will get on your nerves.
Some even go as far as to over glorify Sonic '06 just because of it's "dark" and "serious" story, completely ignoring the fact that 06 nearly killed off the entire franchise for good.
The hatedom is shown to be much worse than the fandom for a number of reasons.
They think that everyone hates Sonic '06, but there were some that do like the game such as SuperMarioEmblem on DeviantArt who likes the game.
A lot of the haters hate Modern Sonic and end up treasuring Classic Sonic like he's flawless, but Classic Sonic has appeared in bad games too like Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis for Game Boy Advance for example.
They would hate on some of the characters like Silver and Mephiles to the point that they hate them because of how they appeared in Sonic '06. It takes more than an appearance of a bad game to be hateable.
Similarly enough, Elise has gotten hate even more so than Silver and Mephiles to the point that they would even want to kill her.
